Where to buy PicoPSU and what type for athlon 4850e + 780G

Post by rado3105 » Wed Dec 03, 2008 11:10 am

Hi, I would like to know what type of PicoPSU is best for Athlon x2 4850e, motherboard 780G, no graphic card(only integrated), hardisk(propably 2.5"). One DVD driver.

And also I would like to know where is best shop to buy, I was thinking from ebay(I would like to get it send by post).

I have also 19V adapter from my broken notebook(I could use it if it was possible).

How many amps or watts is the 19 W brick? Usually notebook power bricks are not more than 3 A or so at 19 V. So you'll probably won't get much more than 60 W or so from a notebook PSU. You'll need to check up on that, though.

Is probably a good place to start. The British Pound is very low at the moment and it's inside EU, so you can avoid import taxes and whatnot. Prices seem reasonable. My buddy bought his PicoPSU from some website in Germany and said they were cheaper, but I can't find that page, though.

Well, that power brick would be put to the test pulling a setup like that. Your setup would probably run at 80 W when running at full tilt, possibly up to 100 W so you brick might not be quite enough.

If you ARE gonna use that brick, then get a "wide input". If not (which I suggest), get the 120 W PSU and a matching brick, no quiestion IMO.
